Neurofeedback is a subdivision of Biofeedback. Neurofeedback gains information about brainwaves through an EEG connected to sensors, which gives information about brain waves to a computer and monitor. Neurofeedback is able to assess the functioning of the brain, locate the cause of the symptoms, and train the brain to function more effectively. Neurofeedback helps calm specific areas, which then allows individuals to process strong emotions, decrease anxiety and widens the ability to tolerate stress in the environment. Many clients need additional help with regulation before they can handle emotional stress in daily life and feelings that can arise in psychotherapy. Healing Hearts recommends Neurofeedback in many of these cases.

All behaviors and emotions are based on brainwave functioning. Neurofeedback helps calm specific areas, which then allows clients to process strong emotions, decrease anxiety and widens their ability to tolerate stress in their environment.
